11:03 pm
what it should be and what it shouldn't be. things government should and shouldn't be involved in. it's really not about the debt ceiling. it's about has our government grown too big and too far. >> the vote is now tomorrow on that rewritten, has more spending cuts than it did yesterday boehner plan. if there is no deal by tuesday it's the administration that gets to decide who gets paid and who doesn't, what in the federal government stays open and what closes down. not wanting to spook the markets by talking too much about that, the administration hasn't said, which means we don't know, which means that even if the administration is planning, the rest of us can't. derek? >> thank you, gary. well there has been yet another high profile killing in the southern afghan city of kandahar. a suicide bomber who hid the explosives inside his turbine assassinated the mayor of kandahar. just two weeks ago, the president's half brother was also killed there. in all, three power brokers from southern afghanistan have been murdered in just the last

or razor blade. >> it is painful and you feel that your space has been violated. it's a form of assault. >> we're a little surprised and it's definitely a unique thing. it's nothing that would fall into a normal category. >> and in fact a criminal profiler tells 9 news the suspect may have a disorder called picorism, in which one finds sexual gratification by cutting or stabbing somebody else in a sexually significant area. surveillance photos, the suspect wears different clothing but one item remains constant, the large white watch on his left arm. again, if you have seen this guy or have any information, call police. the son of council member marion berry could be behind bars. today marion christopher barry plead guilty to felony drug charges. back in may authorities say they found five large bags of pot and a viral of pcp in
11:08 pm
barry's apartment. officers were called there in southwest for some sort of dispute and say that's when the drugs will be found. he will be sentenced next month. if you forgot to pay an old parking ticket the district is about to cut you slack. today the mayor announced a six- month program for drivers with outstanding tickets. however there is a catch. it only applies to tickets issued before january 1 of this year. now you can start paying without any penalty come monday. the district expects or at least hopes to collect about $6.3 million through this program. the militaries brac realignment project is really hitting close to home. for thousands of folks connected to walter reed army medical center. that facility is closing its doors in september and today, it hosted a closing ceremony, allowing generations of staff and patients to say goodbye. the medical centers flag was rolled up by the commanding sargent major, marking the in activation of the unit. >> it was the end of a very
11:09 pm
historical era, but it was also the beginning of an endeavor. the beginning of a great future. >> back in 2005, a government commission voted to close walter reed as part of a cost cutting initiative. in september the facility will be handed over to the state department and the district of columbia and patients will be transferred and an ex opinioned bethesda naval hospital. tonight, new video of the norway massacre, the moment the deadly attacks began. and, see what happened when a fake russian gangster comes looking for a favor from the government. plus, art and the outrageous. inside the world of professional air guitar. that's coming up. i'm meterologist topper shutt. 93 today. we'll take you out with your wake up weather. pretty nice to start, 64-74 by 7:00, and low 80s by 9:00. we'll come back and talk about near record heat coming later

11:14 pm
taken against the social services worker or the medicaid facility in the video. a missing persons mystery out of tacoma park. tonight police are hoping you've seen this woman, donna smith. the 35 year old was last seen leaving the 1200 block of myrtle avenue yesterday but she never arrived for work. she was wearing a pink summer dress and sandals. smith also has a cross tatood on her left shoulder. if you have any information about where she might be, police want to know about it. if you didn't get your fill of frank today, don't worry. there's still about a half hour left in national hot dog day. to celebrate, lawmakers and baseball grates held their annual hot dog luncheon the hill. the american meat institute sponsored the give away of more than 4000 hot dog, corn dogs, sausages and bratwursts. not everybody thinks national hot dog day is so cool and they were making their feelings known as well on the hill. derek makes his feelings known

11:17 pm
setting some record as we close the book on the month. let's talk first about the tropics. we do have tropical storm don. i want to mention this briefly, go to and download our hurricane tracker and it's a great tool. it's free and you can track it right along with us. there is the storm moving across cancun, going back into the gulf of mexico. latest computer guidance, about the same as it was earlier, keeping it a tropical storm, making it hit landfall around early saturday in central texas coast but that's good news. they need the rainfall and it may break their heat wave in texas. dallas has been 100 degrees every day since july 2nd. now, for us, well we can't get used to it. sunday morning commute that we can get used to but the humidity will continue to grow a little bit so it's going to be hot and with more humidity tomorrow, muggy tomorrow night, tomorrow night won't be very pleasant and we get into friday, we're back to dangerous heat. this heat wave late in the week will not be as widespread as it was last week nor quite as severe but still we're talking temperatures near 100.
11:18 pm
that's enough. i hate to throw numbers at you late at night but wake up and check this out. average for june, july and august 31 days, 90 degrees or higher. since june 1 we've had 30 already so it's already at we're at average, we haven't been into august yet and now the average for july, 14 90- degree days, so far 20 and the most you've ever had is 24 and i think we're going to finish the month out in the 90s. that means we'll tie the set back in 1993 and go back to sleep now. clear to partly cloudy, more comfortable. 64 to 74, light wind, just a few clouds pushing through overnight, mostly sunny though in the morning, very warm by noon. 70s and 80s, air quality code orange. that is unhealthy air and if you have respiratory problems keep yourself indoors. by afternoon, partly cloudy and hot, more humid, highs between 90 and 95, keeping it dry tomorrow afternoon, winds south southwest at about 10. so highs tomorrow, 92 downtown, 92 in college park, 94 in
11:19 pm
waldorf, 93 down toward fairfax. zone forecast, well we're going to keep oakland in the 80s. they've had two nice days in the 70s but cumberland 90, 90 in winchester, 94 in culpeper, 90 in manassas and fairfax, low 90s downtown looking at temperatures near 90 on the bay and no winds to speak of, no small craft advisory on the bay. next seven days, here we go. 99 on friday, isolated storm and 96 on saturday, just an isolated storm. some good news, at least scattered storms will develop on sunday and monday and that will keep temperatures in the low 90s but i think we finished the month out in the 90s tying the record. that's kind of exciting, because it won't snow in july. we're still hot next week, 98 by next wednesday. >> woohoo. >> going to break records might as well. >> okay, okay. like that. thanks, top. any red skin trades in the last 20 minutes we need to know about? >> its been non-stop even from the time i left red skin park

11:21 pm
so, what are we going to do with this? i don't know. the usual? [ blower whirring ] sometimes it pays to switch things up. my - what, my hair? no. car insurance. i switched to progressive and they gave me discounts for the time i spent with my old company. saved a bunch. that's a reason to switch. big savings -- it's a good look for you. [ blower whirring ] [blower stops] the safety was off. out there with a better way. now, that's progressive.
11:22 pm
11:23 pm
the done o son mcnabb era in washington was short lived. 13 months and he's already been shipped off to minnesota so the question now is who will be the redskins starting quarterback this season? coach mike shanahan made it clear he's a fan of third stringer john beck, despite the fact beck hasn't taken a regular season snap since his rookie year in 2007 but beck was at every players mini camp this summer and says he's been working out with successful quarterback like aaron rogers and as for the rest of his team they're just waiting to see how the qb scenario unfolds. >> everybody in the quarterback room has played a lot of football. beck, he don't have a lot of
11:24 pm
nfl game experience but he has a lot of nfl experience with practicing and full speed practicing. he looks good. we're not worried about the quarterback situation. >> we'll see what training camp is for. we aren't going to give you a starting job. you got to earn it. >> you can make a case that the redskins have a slight case of hording. they were stockpiling wide receivers and as of today have 14 receivers on the roster. 14. that should make for a very interesting training camp. the redskins started the day acquiring daunte stallworth, the former ravens started out the 2009 season after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter and daphne says he reported to camp in denver today. business is usual and the trade caught him completely off guard. >> i didn't have any clue that it was going to happen but
11:25 pm
there will be a lot of trading going on this week and i wasn't sure i'd be a part in this thing. >> and later this evening, the redskins address the issue of cornerback, finally signing josh wilson. if he's name sounds familiar it's because he's a grad that played at the university of maryland and was with the ravens last year. >> the washington nationals coming off a dismal road trip and hoping a little home field advantage would do them good. they got crushed by the marlins last night 11-2 but today is another day, right? we'll see. the nationals tried to stop a three game skid down three nothing in the fourth until nicks coming through with a solo shot, but the marlins says anything you can do, i can do twice as better. hitting one of his two homers
11:26 pm
of the night, marlins up 7-1 and the nats were within two in the ninth, and nicks trying to tie it up but was just short, just short. nats lose their fourth straight game 7-5 and the trade river mill heating up there, according to fox sports, ken rosenthal, a possible trade for twins and the closer was considered one of the, was once considered one of the young guys the nats franchise was building on but the need for a center fielder could trump that. >> and to the city open, there was some tennis, the first ever city open in college park, and it was all petrova, she advances to the quarterfinals. >> finally, the braves and the pirates, remember this last night, the epic 19 inning games, six hours, 39 minutes well what do fans do hen they've been there for six and a half hours? that guy is carrying a bunch of all of the empty cups. he just went around collecting all of the cups and look, the other fans deciding to help him
11:27 pm
out a little bit, so there's more excitement in the stands than there probably was in the field until the very end but i guess you got to, they might be going a little stir crazy after a little six and a half hours. >> also got to wonder what it was like for them to work today. >> not good. >> if they emptied those cups. >> exactly. very true. good point. we'll be right back.
11:28 pm
11:29 pm
11:30 pm
finally, apparently, folks, we just missed it. that moment when air guitar competition turned into interprative dance. that's the only way to describe what you're about to see.
11:31 pm
>> that's not air guitar. >> it's almost mime like. the guy calls himself nordic thunder and outside of the diaper or whatever it is he's wearing there, you might call it black swan. anyway this little dance earned him the u.s. air guitar title, believe it or not. now, he will go off to finland to compete for the world title unless someone lets him know the ladies don't like air guitar, they aren't impressed. >> don't quit the day job. >> even air drums, air keyboard, it doesn't help. >> he's tried it all. >> [laughter]. goodnight, everybody. >> bye-bye. turn left.
